BALTIMORE, Md. — Morgan State wide receiver Manasseh Bailey has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free-agent Saturday following the conclusion of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Bailey turned in a breakout senior season and earned All-MEAC honors, including a solid performance in the SPIRAL Tropical Bowl back on January 12th.
The Capitol Heights, Maryland product finished his career among Morgan State’s all-time leaders in receptions.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound speedster finished the season ranked 3rd in the MEAC in receiving yards (996 yds.) — it ranks as the 2nd highest total in Morgan State history behind Clarence Holzendorf (1,702 yds.; 1993).
Bailey also ranked among the league leaders: 3rd in reception TDs (10), 4th in receptions (54), 6th in scoring TDs (11), and 8th in scoring (68 pts).
Morgan State can now boast back-to-back years with an NFL pick. Last year, offensive lineman Joshua Miles was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the 7th round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
